Transit Oriented Development
The Transbay Program is a National Model for Transit Oriented Development (TOD)
The Heart of San Francisco
The Transit Center is the hub of a transit-oriented neighborhood where people live, work, visit parks, and shop within walking distance of public transportation.
Reduce Emissions, Improved Efficiency
The transit oriented development around the Transit Center reduces energy and commuting costs, resulting in increases in household incomes, with reduced traffic congestion and commute times increasing productivity.
Creating Open Space
The transit oriented development spurred by the construction of the Transit Center, helps conserve land, particularly sensitive natural areas, and reduce suburban sprawl. They improve health as more people walk and ride bikes, increase neighborhood mobility, and provide new recreational opportunities through development of urban parks.
The Transit Center District Plan and the Transbay Redevelopment Plan are the essential implementing documents for the new Transbay neighborhood.
